Skin cancer checks - Prevention is better than cure
Full body scan. Early melanoma detection.
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Anyone can be at risk of developing skin cancer, and the risk increases as you get older.
Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70.
Skin cancer is easily preventable and is usually curable if detected early. During a skin cancer screening, a full body examination will be performed.
Most skin cancer can be successfully treated if it is found early. But without treatment, skin cancer can be deadly.

Skin cancer surgery
We are highly qualified in the detection and treatment of skin cancers and melanomas. We remove all types of skin cancer using advanced techniques in our Brisbane clinic. Some early skin cancers can be treated without surgery but most are best treated with surgical excision.
The incidence of skin cancer is increasing and reaching epidemic proportions.
The three main types of skin cancer are – basal cell carcinoma (BCC) , squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), or malignant melanoma (MM).

A New Approach towards Diagnosing Malignant Melanoma
SAFE – PAINLESS
Significantly reduces risk of malignant melanoma and unnecessary excision.
Nevisense is the world’s first objective diagnostic support tool for non-visual detection of malignant melanoma. By gathering and analyzing precise electrical measurements in the epidermis and dermis, it provides reliable information unavailable through any other method. Through one simple procedure, it allows you to objectively evaluate suspicious lesions as a complement to your visual examination when deciding whether to biopsy.
With Nevisense, SciBase has developed an innovative method for improving accuracy in the detection of malignant melanoma. Utilizing Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), applied as a harmless electrical signal to the skin, Nevisense is able to provide a reliable, objective analysis of suspicious lesions which complements the physician’s regular clinical evaluations.
The Nevisense method is safe. By providing valuable diagnostic information that is unavailable through other methods, it allows physicians to make more informed decisions in difficult or borderline cases. Nevisense, used as a diagnostic support tool, makes it possible to increase diagnostic accuracy.
